Rex spent his childhood in Orwell and at the young age of six was guided by his father in the woods and introduced to the Maple Syrup Business. Over the years, the business grew to which is now a sixth-generation business known as the Endless Mountains Cabin Maple Syrup. Rex attended a one room school in Orwell and later graduated from Rome High School class of 1947. Farming was also a way of life for Rex, many will remember him as their Corn Salesman or servicing their Massey Ferguson Tractors. Rex loved to spend time outdoors, he loved the beauty of the land and enjoyed hunting. He was a member of the Orwell Bible Church where at one time he served as a trustee. Rex loved to sing and his Baritone Base voice could be heard across the room and could brighten anyone’s day.
